What kind of lights would be best for a patio umbrella-electric, battery, or solar?
I would love to have one of those patio umbrellas with lights running along the inside ribs. Am not enthused about running an electric cord but wonder how long the batteries would last on a battery operated umbrella. Or would an umbrella with solar operated lights be satisfactory.

go electric. solar too dim, batteries don't last. I found a good kit that ties to the ribs.

    Go with solar, cheaper in the long run.

    I just bought a patio umbrella at Lowes & I also bought this ring that has lights in it & goes around the upper part of the pole of the umbrella. It comes with four batteries. I’m not sure how long the batteries last because I haven’t used it yet. I will later this week.

    Like these? http://www.exterior-accents.com/baumli.html?engine=nextag&keyword=baumli

    They probably wouldn’t last more than 3 hours, so I’d go with electric instead.

    These might be a good choice too, although they are pricey.
